. and i think john brennan in his time at the white house, and presuming he moves over to the central intelligence agency, i think he philosophically has that point of view. there are some limits in terms of classification, but i believe the secrecy surrounding drones particularly with respect to pakistan works with to our advantage. i hope the administration finds ways to be more transparent going forward. this is a full plate for john kerry. we have known crisis dealing with syria. can we have a meaningful conversation with iran. he'll be at the forefront of creating a sustainable relationship and a working relationship with new leadership in china. he has been very involved over the years but only in pakistan issues afghanistan issues. he'll work the diplomat iic aspect of the war and he has been involved in the crisis of sudan. if the list wasn't long enough there is the emerging challenge in mali and across and of courseofcourse britain's role, he'll be looking at the concerns of the united states about britain turning inward as opposed to being a strong voice within the european

of john brennan, who has been, you know, back and forth. the drone program, and we are now finally actually starting to talk about drones and whether or not they help or hinder america's national security interests. what you hear about anecdotally is that when you have the drone strikes, it is often in the radicalizing people on the ground, as much as it is, you know, sort of saving american blood and treasure. it is definitely a double-eejed sword. >> it's a complicated question. on the one hand you have successes, foreign policy successes, that the white house can crow and say we've done and killed our enemies, and they like to be able to do that. on the other hand, yes, they're making enemies. you're making more enemies. it's perhaps, you know, more of the same problem. it's just worsening the problem. >> amman, the morning times writes the hostage situation in algeria has hutenned concerns that a military intervention could transform militant groups that had once only a regional focus into enemies of the u.s. the backlash might end up being worse than the original threat. what

from the chuck hagel nomination. other nominations light john brennan, which is controversial in some quarters, but also john kerry are getting lost attention. -- getting less attention. i had conversations with him two years ago about my own views. at the time we are still pursuing -- i had a discussion with hagel about "don't ask, don't tell." it had not been repealed yet. he made very clear his support about the repeal. i did talk to him about this and just want to be clear that he is saying that's it is not just a move that he is apologizing hormell. in addition, he supports lgbt families. he is gone beyond that on women's issues as well. one of the real other subjects we do not often talk about is violence towards women. rates at the academies, rapes in the field. the senate passed an amendment as part of the national defence act giving women who were raped -- i think he is stepping forward. you will hear more about this in the hearings. i think it is important to realize that, like the president, he is a fault on many issues. this is not a move that was triggered by the nominati

in war and the first secretary to lead the department. >> and he is giving his nod to john brennan to be next director of the cia. it's really chuck hagel getting the most scrutiny. comments from his past are coming back to haunt him. i want to bring in peter biner from "newsweek" and daily beast. peter wrote what i think is most of the interesting and compelling articles about the hagel nomination, explaining it better than anywhere i've seen it, including the president. the first paragraph of the piece, you write it may prove the most consequential foreign policy appointment of his presidency. because the struggle over hagel is a struggle over whether obama can change the terms of the foreign policy debate. explain that for me. >> i think so far, the debate about military action in iran has been conducted by and large in washington, as if iraq and afghanistan didn't happen. as if we haven't leashed anything from the disaster that these two wars over the last ten years. the real struggle between hagel and his foes, is he wants to bring some of the lessons in to the iran debate tha
